Andrew Rutledge

Third and Fourth Grade Teacher

Andrew spent seventeen years teaching at Abington Friends School in suburban Philadelphia. He has taught at a Friends School of Minnesota since 2012. He graduated from Grinnell College with a B.A. in Sociology and a certificate in Elementary Education.

 He is the parent of two young boys and an avid ultimate Frisbee player.

"When I moved from Philadelphia I was worried that I would not be able to teach at another school where I could attend to the voices and needs of the students and be led by intellectual interests instead of focusing on standardized testing and inflexible curricula.  I knew about Friends School of Minnesota  through a variety of Friends school interactions and attended a conflict resolution training here in 2001 and I’m so glad to join this amazing faculty."
